Mark Bernstein:

We need a fallback plan to save the country. There may be no choice but to attempt something that will seem radical. We face a procedural roadblock; procedures can be devised to remove it. We need to stop playing with the optics and start planning the worst-case endgame.

These may be the last days before the central catastrophe of (most of) our lives. If it comes to pass, we’ll all be poorer and we’ll never get back to where we would have been.

The world will be poorer. And it will hate the U.S.A. for very good reasons, and it will see this is a failure of democracy.
